The IOS4.1 Updated For the iPhone and iPod Touch Seems To Correct Battery Drain Issue

Image representing iPhone as depicted in Crunc...Image via CrunchBaseYesterday evening, September 8, 2010 it took me over 2 1/2 hours to download and install the new IOS 4.1 update on my iPod Touch.  The servers were very slow and my update timed out 4 times.  Finally I was successful. Upon the completion I immediately noticed that my device launched programs faster, in a way similar to the way it operated prior to installing IOS 4.  I was happy.  However by biggest complaint concerning the iOS4 updates was its negative effect on my iPod Touch second generations battery life.  I had previously experimented with numerous setting and one Apple patch in order to somewhat mitigate this problem but it still remained.  If I left my iPod Touch on all night with the WiFi radio on I would see a 25%-40% battery drain the next day.

This morning I eagerly looked at the battery meter on my iPod Touch to see if there was a significant overnight battery drain.  Guess what.  My battery is still reading 100% as it normally would read before the iOS4 update.  It appears that Apple has corrected the battery drain problem.  I even received push notifications during the night and this morning.

This battery drain fix should work on your iPhone 3 devices also.
